Talk 1 - Designate: An Overview of Openstack DNSaaS

Additionally, Designate will also provide a service for integrating with Nova and Neutron. This talk will cover:

  • Why Openstack and operators need DNSaaS.
  • The Designate Architecture.
  • The Designate API.
  • New Features Since the Last Summit, including MiniDNS, Server Pools, the Version 2 API.
  • The Next Steps For Designate, including the Version 2 API, additions to Server Pools, and MinDNS.

Come see who is involved, and how easy it is to get involved in this exciting project.

This talk is a general overview. It will cover the problem statement, architecture and general features.

Talk 2 - On Server Pools


A deep dive into the advantages that server pools will have for operators.

Dynamic addition of servers, allowing for tiered pricing on DNS features, and distribution of load are major advantages for DNSaaS operators.

With server pools, designate addresses these issues, and in this session we will show an operator how they can use them to the best effect
